The 2015-16 school year was "A Year of Caring." Each story in the Year in Review shows the dedication Staunton City Schools has to our students, families, and the community. The Year in Review has stories about the work happening at Bessie Weller, student projects to help the community, and much more! Click here to read the Year in Review.
We are a school division committed to our students and providing an excellent educational program. Our teachers value the uniqueness of each student and strive to challenge them daily. Teaching engaging lessons rooted in the Standards of Learning augmented by a variety of resources makes every day critical for the achievement for our students.
The School Board conducts an annual review of Policy INDCA-Release Time and has done so since the policy was adopted in 2005. As part of its review process in 2016, the School Board discussed a number of education-related considerations, and decided, in a 5-1 vote on July 8, to discontinue the Release Time Policy.
One of a community’s greatest assets is its public schools – the children, their families, and the school division’s staff. The school buildings create the framework in which our students learn, our teachers teach and our support staff provide services to meet the diverse needs of our programs.
During opening faculty meetings and convocation, the staff clapped and cheered as preliminary data from the 2015-2016 testing year was shared. This assessment year marked many celebrations for Staunton City Schools.
